First read 2014I need to reread this This Otherworldly Politics is a reasonablynteresting non fiction look at the 1911 theft of the Mona Lisa from the Louvre I actually had never heard of this situation but Black Soundscapes White Stages it was fascinating to see how crime was researched and solvedn the early 1900 s mostly using Wholly Unraveled interrogation and some crime scene examination Photography was just starting out son this situation the very first mug shot was taken And the same nvestigator also began using fingerprints trying to solve the crime with his limited collection of right thumb fingerprints although the print he found on scene was of a left thumb The crime was never solved definitively although someone did come forward and confess years later returning what seems to be the original artwork unharmed But his story doesn t seem convincing and there have been many contradictions discovered and suggestions made over the past 100 years This book was uite readable and the few pictures ncluded were helpful The funniest part I thought was when the painting was returned Management Planning for Cultural Heritage it was all the rage for French society ladies to emulate the Mona Lisa by smiling very slightly and posing That picturen my head just makes me laugh This A Cultural History of Animals and Their Meat is the story of the theft of the Mona Lisa from the Louvren 1911 It s an Epistemology as Theology interesting series of events but you can get all thenformation about Fire Horses it you need from the wikipedia article which I strongly suggest because the uality of writingn this book Edoardo Sanguineti is abysmal The author cannot resist adding flowery melodramatic and freuently nonsensical descriptions that practically writhe off the page The whole thing calls to mind a ninth grader desperately trying to pad an essayHere s an exampleNight like liuid velvet settled over the mansard roofsnnocent Dkfindout!
